A joint charity Activity Day was held at the Loughshore last Saturday with teams raising money for The Princes Trust and Macmillan Cancer Support.
The teams that took part were staff from Asidua, Antrim Borough Council, Asda & Sam Mouldings Ltd.
The teams of six took part in an assault course, climbing wall, bridge building, a raft race, stand up paddle and canoeing and plenty of fun was had by all. The competition was very high but the winners were Asidua with Sam Mouldings coming in a second.
The organisers - Cynthia Cherry and Irene Gates - wish to thank the sponsors Asidua, Asda, Tescos, the Mayor Councillor Roderick Swann, Antrim Borough Council, Moes Grill, Tayto, St John Ambulance and Eye Feel Good.
Local fundraiser Cynthia plans to raise £20,000 for the Macmillan Palliative Care Unit in 2013.
With the help of hundreds of people over the last 10 years Cynthia will then have raised a total of £300,000 for various causes but particularly Macmillan Cancer Support.
This year she has organised three fundraising events with the help of the Eye Feel Good team – Cynthia’s Climbing Challenge for Macmillan, a Business Activity Day and a Youth Club Activity Day.
She is also going to challenge people to take part in her Jolly Jam Jars for Macmillan competition.
The Jolly Jam Jars is a new initiative and Cynthia is challenging people to empty and clean a jam jar, put it in a convenient place in their house and fill it with any spare change during 2013 for Macmillan.
Cynthia is also asking them to decorate the jars if they wish and at the end of the year she will give a prize to the best jar decorated by a child and the best jar decorated by an adult.
People can start now and then contact Cynthia on 07703547647 when their jar is full and she will make arrangements to collect it.
Cynthia thanks everyone for their help with her fundraising over the last 10 years and looks for your support again this year for a worthy cause.
